Chrissie returns to the family home to collect her things before leaving the village forever. However, Rebecca is determined to get her father and sister talking again, and resorts to handcuffing them to each other. That old chestnut. Elsewhere, Vanessa starts to see the other side of Pierce (at least somebody is) and challenges him on his controlling behaviour, while Laurel unwittingly encourages Rhona to rush ahead with the wedding plans. Dammit Laurel!
